Top PickBelly Up Aspen

You won’t find a better venue to listen to big acts in the Valley.  They’ve got world famous acts in a very intimate setting (around 500 people max).  Check out the line-up when you’re in town….this place never disappoints.



Play some pool (lots of pool tables), get your groove on the dance floor (DJ), or smoke a stogie in the cigar bar.  Great mix of tourists and locals. Fun times/late nights.


39 Degrees (Sky Hotel)

If you want swank, this is your place.  Whether it’s winter or summer, you’ll find locals and tourists hanging by the pool, having a cocktail (or five), and getting their groove on to DJ Dillon.  A great spot for apres ski, especially if you’re young and hip.


Bad Billy’s

Bad Billy’s is now where the good old Cooper Street Pier used to be.  It’s been deep cleaned and freshened up a bit, but is your typical dive bar for good times.  Order a pitcher of beer, play some shuffleboard (pool tables upstairs) and let the good times roll.


Hunter Bar

Where the old Flying Dog Brewpub used to be, the Hunter Bar is one of the few places these days that rocks til 2 am.   Listen to the DJ, get on the dance floor or just kick back in the relaxed, yet sensual, atmosphere enjoying one of their creative cocktails.  Good for apres ski too.


Zane’s Tavern (Snowmass)

A sports bar, restaurant and most definitely locals’ favorite, Zane’s fun every night.  Play pool, foosball, and of course, Golden Tee or jam out to their Internet Jukebox.  You’ll always find lots of locals hamming it up here.


The Regal

Paul and Tim welcome you to their underground bar where dancers grind and cocktails flow.  Younger crowd (20’s). Voted the best place to find a one-night stand.  That about sums it up.  ;)


Jimmy’s Aspen

Do you want to hang with the locals and have some fun?  Jimmy’s is great for dinner, but even better for hanging with your friends, especially if you like tequila (boy do they have tequila!).  You can salsa and tango on Saturday nights too (and enjoy blues during Sunday brunch).
